It seems some freeking nut job and his buddy have been going around Connecticut in the last couple of days randomly shooting innocent minority bystanders. Fox was sure to let it be known that in one instance the shooter emptied "up to nine rounds" at one victim.

Just what we need for Media attention in between Chuckie ShoeShiner ranting about the AWB today in the Senate, and another Hundred Mom March coming up in NJ this weekend.

Keep your powder dry in the New England area. If you don't have a CT Pistol Revolver License, I would suggest getting one, FAST.

Lonnie,

I hardly think that a registered CHLicensed person is running around doing this. (That's never happened yet) So I wouldn't worry about the Connecticut legislators repealing the carry law for CHL holders, or suggesting such action.

However, we just don't need the kind of media and national focus being drawn onto any such shootings at this time in the waning days of the AWB.

I was suggesting for the people on this board who havent' applied for their permits yet to do so now to PROTECT THEMSELVES.

It's too bad the innocent bystanders can't shoot back . If they could this kind of crap would'nt be happening . That's what these "gun control" laws do for you . :cuss: Violent felons will always have guns and use them , that is why they are violent felons and no law is going to keep them from getting guns , but we all know that .

CT is for the most part "shall-issue". These people could have gotten permits most likely.

Oddly enough, this is happening in the city where they badgered the new Wal-Mart who agreed not to sell firearms & the Chief of Police stated he was concerned about the illegal & LEGAL possesion of firearms.

Last time I watched the news, they said that only minorities had been targeted, but I hope this isn't some stupid racial thing. I believe it's "only" handgun related, so I haven't heard any whining about AW's, though we have our own stupid AW ban.

Of course, I have my CHL... ;)

Just a coincidence? Hmmmmm!
